DISTANCE LEARNING FOR THE WEEK MONDAY 20TH TO FRIDAY 25TH APRIL

Please find this week’s activities listed below. The majority of parents asked for a weekly upload but I have given some guidance, especially for the English, so the work is completed in the right order.

Monday:

No English today as all the school is working on our value of Trust.

  1.  If you can, please watch the following You Tube clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYLHqdSO9OY

 -         Jesus calms the storm – Matthew 8:23-27, Mark 4:35-41 & Luke 8:22-25

The disciples should have trusted Him. They thought they might drown.

Your challenge is to make a boat – this could be out of anything you like but think carefully about the materials if you want it to float!

  1. Our Bible Verse this half term is:

 ‘Trust in the Lord with all you heart and lean not on your own understanding’

-         Proverbs chapter 3 verse 5

Could you turn this into a poster and display in your window – you might be able to link in the Rainbow symbol that lots of us are using at the moment.

Wednesday – Sentence Challenge and ‘Sick’ Sentences

Thursday – Perfect Picture (drawing instead of writing today)

Friday – Complete the story starter:

The young pup peered down into the icy water below with trepidation. Only a few days old, she had learnt so much already from watching her mother, but this challenge was her greatest so far.

How would it feel to be submerged? What would she find lurking underneath the surface? How would she ever get back to dry land?

Questions flooded her mind like a torrent of icy water, but bravely she inched closer to the edge…

A PROJECT ABOUT THE FAMILY

This project aims to provide opportunities for your child to gain a better understanding of their own family. Learning may focus on the different makeup of families, what traditions your family has, stories linked to your family etc.

 ● Music from the Past ​- ​Your child can research music from the decade their parents, grandparents or other older family members were born. What were the most popular bands or singers during this time? Ask them to perform a song from this decade and create their very own dance routine. Encourage them to explain how they need to improve their performance in order to achieve their personal best.

 ● Portraits and Photography - ​Direct your child to​ ​take portrait photographs of their family members considering light and textures. Following this, they can then use the photographs to draw portraits in pen considering light and tone. 

 ● Classification​ - Ask your child to design a classification key based on the simple physical features of their family. They can then test out the keys on each member of their family. Only use ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions. 

 ● Nature vs Nurture -​ Speak to your child about their appearance, their personality and their dreams for the future. How much of this do they believe is determined by their genes? How much of this is determined by their family/upbringing? Ask them to decide which traits are due to nature and which traits are due to nurture e.g. hobbies and interests or sense of humour. Try this out on other family members. 

 ● Mapping Skills - ​Identify the countries or cities within the UK where their family members originate from or live. Children can then plot these on a map and then create a bar chart to show the number of family members who live/lived in each city/country.
